Pros

First few years were promising with structured coaching and development

Cons

as the market saturated, management tried becoming innovative in their approach, but found that over time when they received a lack of responseness, they created a hostile work environment where more than 75% of staff over the course of 3 years was fired or let go due to some type of primary or secondary metric.

Advice to Management

Learn to manage your staff and take a curve down approach when delivering your message.

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible work schedule (for most corporate employees), work/life balance. There are advancement opportunities and many employees have high tenure. A high number of employees have a sense of loyalty to the company and believe in its value.

    Cons

    Micromanaging is a huge issue right now due to the pressure to make sales quotas or validate someone's position. They lack much needed interdepartment communication on key initiatives. Each department only focuses on their needs rather than a company-wide vision. Executive management teaches not to manage by the numbers but that's all everyone does, and it comes from the top down. The commission structure is so confusing that no Sales Rep knows how they get paid (corporate sales, not retail).

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees and they will be more motivated to excel. Don't manage by the numbers. Trust your exempt level employees to manage their time wisely and reward by their accomplishments rather than micromanaging.
